Abstract: 

The purpose of the present study was to investigate a) the levels of job satisfaction, role conflict and role ambiguity of the employees at the Olympic Rowing Venue of Schinias, and b) to investigate the relationship between role conflict and role ambiguity, and job satisfaction. The sample of this study was consisted of 100 employees (N=100) with mean age 29.66 years (SD=4.856). The Employee Satisfaction Inventory (ESI, Koustelios & Bagiatis, 1997) was used to measure job satisfaction, and the role ambiguity and conflict scales (Rizzo, House, & Lirtzman, 1970) for the measurements of role conflict and role ambiguity. The results indicated that the employees were relatively satisfied with their supervisor, the job itself, working conditions and their salary, less satisfied with the organization and dissatisfied with the promotion opportunities. The levels of role conflict were found relatively high, whilst those of role ambiguity, low. The multiple regression analysis indicated a negative relationship between role conflict and ambiguity with all aspects of job satisfaction.
